What people are saying about Mayrhofen

The whole experience was amazing. Worth every penny. Mario is great and I felt comfortable immediately. I recommend para-gliding with his company to anyone thinking about doing this activity.

Great experience! Very convenient communication upfront and a very safe flight, although the weather wasn't optimal.
